Seems to be slowly dying. Hardly any posts now. It makes me feel a bit sad as I used to enjoy it there at one time. Now it seems to be full of people I don't know, and very few I like. :cry:

I look in a few times a week but obviously can't post. I do see the odd comment I would have replied to if I could but mostly not. Posts here have fallen off a lot from when it started out. It may be because we are into summer and out of lockdowns so people get on with other stuff.

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

Certainly it sees far fewer posts than used to be the case. I post very little there now, because most of my posts are responses - and there's precise little to which to respond

Thank you for the days, the days you gave me

I sometimes wonder if I should start another thread in support of Israel  :evil:

Raven

OR, you could start a thread wondering where Deep is.  [1150]

Sciatica used to have palpitations whenever Israel was mentioned. :grin:
Yes, where is Deep  ? nobody missing him I'll have to have a peek on the Old Men forum see if he's crawled back....

Raven

Did he ever truly leave his previous site? :shh:

Scrumpy

I didn't mind Sciatico, he would just preach about something he felt strongly about, as people do.. 
The Deep was something else he was a tuppenny  h'penny  snob. And looked down on those who he thought were beneath him.. Not many, in my opinion..

Yep. I looked in earlier, very quiet to say the least. I left a couple of funnies for old times sake and logged out. Can't help but feel a little sorry for Chris...

My reason for quitting the forum, following an unprovoked, personal insult about my descriptive use of the English Langauge. An insulting, ignorant man who despite his arrogant claim for superiority in etymology, described Parliament as having been perogued!  A 'perogue' pirogue is a term for a small boat like a canoe. The word was 'prorogued'... 'de facto, mea culpa' a midget brained berk!

I think he and the other boggard 'Sciatico', who manifested in parallel I recall, were left undisciplined for too long. The framework started to fragment and decompose, until the Forum owner, belatedly put the cuffs on, but too late for justice to compensate those offended. Consequently, as in most mismanaged entities the end beckoned 'ita fiat esto'...

Goodnight Vienna!

Cassandra, you are delicious.. When I called him a tuppenny h'penny snob you very kindly put the saying into words.. x

I think also at the same time there were technical problems with people not being able to log in (?) and Chris seemed to drag his heels a bit in trying to correct it which frustrated a few people.

Scrumpy

Frustration all round then..!!
And klondike took the brunt of it all.

I think both Forums are struggling.. This site because we are unable to (attract ) new members which I feel we could hang on to if they joined..
The other Forum because  Digitalis keeps it going.. Along with Brian who loves all the attention.. little realising that he is only listened to because there is no-one else..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

I broke my rule again and replied to one of Brian's inanities.  :boo:
Its not how old you are, but how you are old. 💖
